That last impulse that moved through The Front really packed a punch, closing the Canyon for the day, and setting up an interlodge situation on the hill. Both Snowbird and Alta did not open today and the road remains closed. There were some stupendous slides out of the Superior slide area and Hellgate, which crossed the road and kept on rollin’. With some unusual atmospheric anomalies, the temps were warmer and it rained down here at The Trailer and the product on the hill was dense and wind affected. The avalanche danger is extreme and all aspects have been given a black designation on the aspect circle.

A wind affected surface to illustrate the dynamics of this storm cycle, but not of today.

Tomorrow, look for more snow to have fallen overnight as it is not over yet, a delayed opening of The Canyon and the area. Be patient and, perhaps sleep in on the Holiday. The base is really building up and nearing 100″, which is a great level that indicates fully fat pack conditions. More storms are in the forecast, so get ready for that. IBBY!!!
